As you all know, today is the most glorious of all unofficial holidays---Super Bowl Sunday.
Whether you're rooting for the San Francisco 49ers or the Baltimore Ravens (which, by the way, you shouldn't be), looking forward to Queen Beyoncé performing at halftime, or just tuning in to watch the commercials, the Super Bowl XLVII is bound to have something for you.
And since, at least for now, you're here instead of ESPN, some of the senior Spec Sports staff have put together a pick and a bold prediction (à la the NFL Network) to help get you ready for tonight.
Check out our predictions, and leave yours in the comments!
Myles Simmons, Sports Editor
"Kaepernick throws an early pick to Ed Reed, but leads the 49ers down the field in the last five minutes for a game-winning drive."
Alison Macke, Sports Editor
"Ray Lewis re-injures his arm and has to come out of the game."
Rebeka Cohan, Former Sports Editor, Sports Columnist
"Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will spend a significant amount of time talking about Beyoncé's halftime performance."
Steven Lau, Multimedia Editor (and Bay Area resident, for what it's worth)
"The Niners are going to rush for more than 300 yards and throw for 250."
Muneeb Alam, Deputy Sports Columns Editor
"The Capitals and Penguins (12:30 EST on NBC) will have more scoring plays than the Ravens and Niners combined."
Molly Tow, Deputy Sports Features Editor
"Ray Lewis cries."
Eli Schultz, Deputy Sports Multimedia Editor
"The 49ers will double the Ravens' rushing yard total."
Peter Andrews, Sports Columnist
"David Akers will miss the game-tying field goal, and Jim Harbaugh will slam his headset into the ground at least once."
Sam Tydings, Sports Columnist, WKCR broadcaster
"Flacco throws two picks, Kaepernick accounts for four touchdowns."
